Step 6: Draw two lines above of the body as the first part of the guide for the phoenix's wings.
Step 7: Now draw two curved lines underneath as the second part of the guide for the wings. Remember that the phoenix is a mythical creature, so feel free to make the wings bigger and make any other changes you'd like along the way.
Step 8: Use a few angled lines near the bottom part of the body as guides for the feet.
Step 9: Use a couple of long, wavy lines under the body as a guide for the tail. Some depictions of the phoenix have shorter tails; others have very long ones. You can adjust yours however you'd like.
That's it for the initial sketch! From this point on, press harder with your pencil to get a more defined sketch.
